Divorce Rant Part 1

Always use council to represent you!

I made the crucial mistake to not be represented by council during my divorce negotiations and have been paying, literally, for the final outcome ever since and until December 2027.

Gentlemen, under no circumstances should you ever represent yourself. You should always strive to settle with Child Support and possibly Alimony/Spousal Support. Avoid terms such as Equitable Division of Property OR Business Buyout.

Make sure you use and state your income in the appropriate forms and remember, the national average is 20% of gross income. Never go higher than that!

Walther PPK/S – a much needed cleaning

Now that I have my weapons permit I decided to go to the gun range with a good friend of mine. I took my Walther PPK/S and let her loose. It’s a 9mm .380 cal killing machine.

At the range it jammed on me several times for which I remembered I never cleaned and oiled it. I went to S.P.D. in Smyrna where I bought a Classic Universal Cleaning Kit.

I don’t know much about the Walther so I decided to get the aid of good ol’ YouTube. I found a video that gave me specific instructions on how to disassemble and what parts needed to be oiled and cleaned.

I was a bit nervous but once I broke it apart it became easy and fun. The kit was a huge help because it had everything I needed from Gun Oil, rods, patches, a brush and a soft rag.

Disassembled and mid-way through cleaning

Spent a lot of time cleaning and oiling all the nooks and crannies

Now my baby is well cleaned and lubricated and ready to fire.

Wanna know more about this fine firearm?
